Our recent three night stay is a very fondly remembered highlight of our five week trip to New Zealand. Colleen and Ashley are wonderful, gracious hosts and gave us a very warm welcome upon arrival.

What a wonderful review. Thank you! It was such fun meeting you both and getting to know you just a little bit in the short time you stayed with us. So many guests enjoy visiting Waitangi, which I know was a favourite spot of yours and it really does do a good job of relating the history of New Zealand....

We loved loved loved staying here. It is the most beautiful property that we've had the good fortune to stay at. The views were absolutely stunning from the cottage: overlooking a river and green rolling hills dotted with grazing sheep in the distance. This property can be a destination in and of itself. The grounds were absolutely gorgeous: many flowers...

Set on the riverside this small B&B was a 10 minute drive from Paihia where there are the amenities. The room was large and clean with a small kitchen area and large shower. The hosts were excellent, making booking for restaurant and boat trips and advising on the local area, besides serving up an excellent breakfast.
